Fake news are news pieces that are verifiably false, usually disseminated with an intent to deceive. Fake news are often associated with the political realm, but are not confined to it: marketing, journalism, and science are all confronted with the notion that misinformation and fact blur, and are intentionally blurred. By discrediting traditional sources of reliable information, the concept of fake news is further used as a means of political propaganda. This introductory chapter discusses conceptual issues, presents some examples of fake news in the context of changing technological dissemination opportunities, and offers a bird's eye view on the topics covered in this volume.
